Born in Madrid and raised in New York City, Claire M Marin, proprietor of Catskill Provisions had already attained success in the corporate world as a national magazine Publisher. After moving to the small, rural town of Long Eddy in the Catskill Mountains, she started beekeeping as a hobby and found herself drawn to the bees and how they work in easy harmony with each other and their surroundings.
Today, Claire tends to over 300 beehives in Delaware, Sullivan, and Madison Counties in New York State in cooperation with other local beekeepers to create small-batch, hand-packed honey harvested several times a year.
To take it one step further, Claire decided to begin making spirits and utilizing all local, NYS grains that would pair well with her NYS honey. A percent of sales is donated to environmental causes devoted to saving the bees and other pollinators.
This rye whiskey is made out of NYS grains and is 3-4 years old. It is matured in New Charred American oak and then transferred into a barrel that previously held NYS, Catskill wildflower honey and is finished in this barrel for about 2 weeks.
Tasting Notes from the Brand: Smooth and rich flavor with hints of toffee, burnt orange peel, and golden raisins.
Holly’s Tasting Notes: Burnt honey, earth, and almost an oily aloe and nougat quality. Peppery with nuts, orange, chocolate, and some sweetness on the finish. Not overly sweet, that’s for sure!
